. then he changed it to paths of prosperity. that's the one he stuck with today. well to paraphrase shakespeare a ryan budget by any other name would still smell unsweet. it would eliminate most of obama-care, it would repeal financial regulation, and it would make major cuts to medicare. sounds great. here he is trying to convince americans that they want this tired 'ol lemon of a plan. >> it's a path to prosperity, a responsible balanced budget. we believe we owe the american people a balanced budget. for the third straight year we've delivered. >> michael: congressman, what you owe the american people is respect. they're smart enough to understand that you introduced the exact same budget during the election and you lost. jay carney today said that the president wants to trim medicare but with a scalpel not an axe. and ryan let slip his real plan for medicare system. >> this to us is something that we're not going to give up on because we're not going to give up on destroying the healthcare system for the american people. >> michael: that was bushan it was so man. was it a freudi
. >> everything changes in this country, all the time. so i think it's exactly what this country is supposed to be about. >> michael: the issue has picked up speed since 2008 when california passed prop 8 a ban on gay marriage, the next year two couples sued the state. four years later the case has landed in the supreme court. the justices will decide whether california voters had the constitutional right to bangay marriage. lawyers for both sides made their case today. the lawyer representing gay couples said that prop 8 is unconstitutional because it quote walls off gays and lesbians from marriage. but charles cooper argued that there was already a democratic process going on in the states to determine whether gay people should marry, and the court should stay out of it. he also said allowing same-sex couples to marriage would sever marriage and encourage so-called responsible procreation. >> michael: that issue of whether marriage is just about having kids is part of the discussion. here is justice kagan. >> michael: would that be constitutional? a very good questio
because the president changed u.s. policy when it came to israeli settlement. professionally the u.s. said there can be no peace talks until israel stopped building settlements on the occupied territoried. today the president lectured the israelis saying it's counterproductive and does not help the peace process but he said the talks continue any way. did he not tell the israelis that you must stop building the settlements like he has in the past. >> michael: the speech did not have a lot of expectation. did they lower the bar because they knew no big speech was going to happen on this trip? i was skeptical of why he was even going. >> a couple of things. clearly, there is a political need here in the united states. the polls show that the the president is wobbly among jewish voters, but if he can be seen showing the united states' strength and standing with the best ally in the region, that might help at home. the president frankly gave the israelis what they wanted yesterday when he said look there, is no way the usa is united states is going to allow iran to develop a weapon. the israel
to lose their seats in 2014 and i think we can change the congress over this issue. i mean, what is killing 87 americans a day? not the debt ceiling? it's gun violence, and it's unrestricted access to guns by criminals and the mentally ill, thanks to the capitol managements and the nras of the world who are arming criminals and -- and controlling our hard-fought democracy. we have got to take your democracy back. there are way more of us than there are of those lunatics in the nra, and their benefactors in the gun industry. but we have to hold our congress people accountable. >> michael: it seems, john noot to sort of douse your flames on this, it seems like they are calling. thanks goodness there is bloomberg to counter these people for the first time. isn't the moment going away now? i know we said that about gabby giffords, and i thought that was going to be the moment and it clearly wasn't, now i thought this was a no-brainer. what has to happen? >> i'm afraid something far worse than newtown. as we get further and further away from newtown, we're seeing
chaos for 50 years now so no change there. right now the opposition, which has been fractured and splintered since 19 8 98 is trying to regroup and bring in chavez's hand-picked successor. right now in venezuela the status is as natural, but everyone is trying to clamor for power at the moment. >> michael: you think this chavezism or the chavezimo, as they say will continue on even though he has been ill. >> well, he has not been leader, and they've continued on the same path. basically a more boring version of hugo chavez, no charisma but same language. he's accusing the obama administration trying to prevent a coup in caracas. by the way we told you earlier today that the empire up north is attempting a coup so it's the exact same tactic as 1998. >> michael: let's talk about what it will do with his relations with the united states. are they likely to change? >> not really. again, all we have to do is look at earlier today when he was throwing down the gauntlet saying medora was throwing down the gauntlet and saying the empire and they ridiculed obama and it basically change
like this that we really see change happen. (vo)if recent history is any indication, it seems impossible to predict exactly what kind of change we can expect. >> michael: coming up tonight, numbers, be they 2800 dead, 11 million undocumented or ten years since, they define where we've been, where we are and perhaps where we're headed. i'm michael shure. this is "the war room." [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> michael: today marks the ten-year anniversary of the iraq war. hard to believe but it's been a full decade since headlines across the country heralded a quote, targeted surgical invasion to top be saddam hussein. as we know there were no weapons of mass destruction and it was anything but targeted. the country itself is still plagued by violence and bloodshed. there were 16 car bombs, and one assassination leaving 52 dead and 180 wounded. all told 130,000 130,000 iraqi civilians have died since the war began. this country has lost 3400 troops and 100,000 more have been injured. john lewis today is not a day for celebration but a time when this nation should reflect upon the t

[ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> michael: i'm michael shure. this is "the war room." coming up tonight politicians may not always be smart but at least they're long-winded. [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> michael: in greek mythology a giant boulder up a steep hill. every time he neared the peak of that hill the rock would roll down and they would have to start all over again. americans have been pushing boulders up the hill, specifically capitol hill without success and with failure. with whether on guns, the budget the war on terror, the civil rights we got to keep pushing. thethe heaviest one on the hill is gun safety. despite the outrage of sandy hook tragedy. gun control has face entrenched obstacles. but today there
the wrong place to expect a change in the republican party. remember the base is still mostly whiter, mostly older and mostly very conservative. neither people who have no real interests in adopting the kind of views necessary to move to the middle and maybe to win more votes. right now i think the republican reform project ought to be concentrated on elites in politicians. if you take a step back and look at what the democrats said after the 1988 election, in 1988 michael do you dukakis loses big time to bush, and they led the charge to moderate the democratic party and bring it back to center and win elections. right now for the g.o.p. they have to take the same approach. more on that, did the base do itself any favors? >> i don't think they did itself any flavors. favors at all. with the christie exclusion mcdonnell exclusion is puzzling. christie is not a liberal. they hold similar views on marriage, labor, they're the same politicians that republicans should want. men who can win in blue or purple states using a moderate techno cratic mention and has the personality to hold voters. you
